Save a School with Ashwini Charitable Trust



Ashwini Charitable Trust (ACT) sends underprivileged children of unskilled laborers, unable to pay the children's school fees, to school. In keeping with ACT's mission of empowering the children and the teachers of government schools so that they can be at par with the private schools, the Government Tamil Higher Primary School in Murphy town was adopted in July 2013. ACT has undertaken the 'renewal' and 'repair' of the existing school building and premises.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

When ACT adopted the school, the establishment was in a dilapidated state: broken flooring, furniture, termite infested walls, damaged roof making the classrooms open to rain, weeds and rubbish in the playground, dysfunctional toilets and lack of safe water, unlivable watchman's quarters. All this made the school a very unsafe environment for children. Of the 118 students who are currently enrolled in the school, the daily attendance is only about 70 students. You can help them return to school.

How will this project solve this problem?

ACT has already undertaken several renovation activities in the past 6 months. Remedial measures have been started for pest control, re-cementing and repainting broken walls and flooring and re-tiling roofs. This project will address - repair, paint and rain proof classrooms, retile floor. Build new class rooms,a science lab and a security room; Improve playground and introduce sports; Rain water harvesting and waste management; Termite treatment - maintenance at regular intervals.

Potential Long Term Impact

ACT ensures a rich learning environment by improvements in classroom interaction and quality of engagement with the children and their families. ACT's volunteers have pitched in to improve the absenteeism/dropout rates by building infrastructure,introducing new learning processes, art classes and fun activities in the school. Our programs include -Health,Hygiene and Sex education for the children; Child Rights Programs; Reading, Math and Science made fun through play way methods;Sports programs
